THE ND2C Live Design Challenge is an exciting live design competition where 5 exceptionally talented, up and coming designers will compete head-on for the chance to kick-start their careers in front of hundreds of design giants and enthusiasts, as well as potential recruiters and buyers.

We take our inspiration from the AIGA’s Command X – which is described as the “Hunger Games” of the Design World. The ND2C Life Design Challenge, however, is in its infancy and based on a flatter structure. The Challenge is, however, no lesser feat so get ready for a face-off you have never experienced before.

How it works:

  • 5 applicants will be shortlisted to participate in the Live Design Challenge
  • 3 days before Day 1 of the conference, participants will receive an Information Packet with a prompt
  • On Day 1 of the conference, participants work on their designs and present to a panel of mentors for critique
  • On Day 2 of the conference, participants continue to refine their projects and pitches
  • At the end of Day 2, the 5 designers get on stage in front of hundreds of designers and a panel of judges to explain and defend their work
  • The winner gets bragging rights for the Designer of the Year Title and a cash prize.
